    A Hard Practice Game,
As Westminster had canceled, ar
rangements were made with the
Jersey Shore team to play here last
Saturday. They came highly elated
over their previous showing against
the College team and determined to
win from the Varsity in any manner.
A large crowd of students assem
bled to witness the contest. The
teams lined up with Jersey Shore
defending the south goal ar.d Mos
crip kicked off. The ball went
across the goal line after a Jersey
Shore man had touched it and State
claimed a touch back. This was
disputed and the ball was finally
given to Jersey Shore on the 25-yard
line. They failed to gain and kicked
to Yeckley on the 55-yard line.
From here State carried the ball
down the field for a touchdown at
the hands of Smith, and Moscript
easily kicked rhe goal.
Kelley got the next kick-off and
brought it back 15 yards. Again
they could not gain and punted. A
series of plays netting 3 to 5 yards
at a clip finally placed the ball where
Yeckley could easily score the sec
ond touchdown. The goal was easi
ly kicked.
State again kicked off —this time to
Corson, who returned the ball 15
yards. On the next play Earr threw
the runner for a five yard less and
Jersey Shore kicked. Partridge,
Yeckley and Moscrip each made
first downs and McGee was sent
through the line for 15 yards, ten of
which he made alone with three men
hanging to him. Partridge took the
ball over and with Moscrip’s goal
the score stood 18-0. This ended
the scoring in the first half. Yeckley
was injured and Fawkes replaced
him. The half closed with the ball in
State’s possession on their opponents
30-yard line.
In the second half Jersey Shore
kicked off to Moscrip who ran back
20 yards before being downed.
State gained ’consistently. Gotwals
who had replaced Smith was quite
efficient. In a short time Fawkes
was shoved over for a count. Jersey
Shore fumbled the kick-off and
their man was downed cn the 10
yard line. They gained some, mak
ing one first down, but were scon
forced to kick. McGee lan the
ball back 20 yards. Despite some
very airly play at this time by Jer
sey Shcie a few plays sufficed to
put McGee behind the line. Short
ly after the next kick-off Mcllveen
replaced Fawkes and played a fierce
game. The ball now went from one
half-back to the other until it was on
the five yard line. Here it was lost
on an unfortunate fumble and Jer
sey Shore kicked to the center of
the field. Time was called at this
juncture with the score: State 30
Jersey Shore, 0.
McAvoy’s hurdling was a feature
of the game. He did seme very
daiing work and gained repeatedly.
Jersey Shoie’s line although 20
pounds heavier per man than State’s
was very weak and long gains were
made regularly through it. McGee
and Wray filled their positions very
creditably and Moscrip’s kicking was
marked especially in the ease and
accuracy with which he kicked the
whole five goals. That same help
ing spirit and good team work that
characterized all the games of the
year was better if anything than ever
Honhart ran the the team very well
in the absence of Saunders and
handled the ball smoothly. The

The Sophomore Electrical —Civil
game played here last Saturday af
ternoon was more interesting and
better played than the usual inter
section games. The Electricals had
the advantage throughout the game
and won by straight football. In
the first half they recived the kick
off on their five yard line and car
ried the ball by steady gains to with
in six yards of their goal. Here
when a touchdown seemed certain,
time was called.
In the second half the Civils had a
chance at aggressive work and made
good gains, Laird making a thirty
yard run. The Electricals, however,
got the ball in midfield on a blocked
kick and carried it down the field
for the only touch-down of the game.
